Pond Skater RC Boat from styrofoam dishes

Yahia Emarah asked "can you teach me how to make a rc boat from a foam plate". Two problems there. First I tend to make boats by carving solid lumps of styrofoam block or modifying cheap plastic toys. Second, I have run out of styrofoam plates. So instead I made a boat from styrofoam dishes and powered it with the components from a cheap rc helicopter.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
